Las Vegas is a dazzling oasis in the Mojave Desert. Once a frontier town populated only by intrepid traders,
missionaries, and trailblazers, it has grown into the world’s most garish city—a gambling and entertainment paradise boasting some of the world’s biggest, most flamboyant, and luxurious hotels and casino resorts.

Las Vegas in Photographs
takes a visual tour of the city and its breathtaking natural backdrop. Beginning Downtown on Fremont Street, the historic gambling core of Vegas, it continues up the famous and fabulous Strip and out into surrounding areas. Within its pages are the stories of entrepreneurs and mobsters who built ever-larger and more ambitious resorts, of the days when Sinatra could be found performing at the Sands and Elvis had a regular spot at the International Hotel.

Today’s Las Vegas is enjoying a new golden age, led by the fountain splendor of Bellagio, the Luxor with its light beam that can be seen from outer space, and Wynn Las Vegas, where high rollers can spend their winnings at the inhouse Ferrari dealership. Outside of the city this book explores the dramatic scenery of Mount Charleston, Red Rock Canyon, and the architectural wonder of the Hoover Dam. Overflowing
with images as stunning as the city itself, Las Vegas in Photographs is a spectacular celebration of America’s most exciting, fastest growing, and—above all else—fun city.
